    Who would be interested in getting together and doing a small drive throughout the city with there exotics, maybe organize a nice dinner in front of earls or another restaurant. Maybe evan take some pictures with all the cars. I think it be great for all exotic owners to meet. Could be a great time.
    I wouldn't mind organizing the event..

    Who would be interested..

    i'm coming back on the 18th of august, but we probab need some time to get rid of the jet lag and to sort everything out...should be good to go by the 20th. school starts on sept 1st, so it may be hard for me then....so yea, w/e wrks for u guys!

    myhorse: i have seen quite a few testarossas, all red? i remember that the first ferrari i saw on the road was a red TR, bout 3 years ago at the U of A, but most of the ferraris i see presently r around riverbend, where i live. one of my friends says that there's a brown guy that goes to Vernon Barford Jr High who's dad has a red 512 TR...i also met the brother of a frequent customer at ZR Auto...first his bro had a testarossa, then got a blue 308 GTS, but traded that in again for a red 355 Berlinetta...his brother let me into the garage to look at the 355...he was real nice, we chatted bout cars for a while, and then when i was gonna leave he apologized that he couldn't let me sit in it or open the engine cuz he didn't have keys.....lol!

    does anyone from edmonton know bout the countachs? i have seen 2 red ones, and apparently one is a real 500 but the other seems to be a kit car....anyone know the facts?

    I know some facts about the lambos. The one that is a kit car was build on an orginal 1985 lambo chassis that was written off. I think the owner used to own bad boy cars in edmonton that used to build kit cars. Just a couple of weeks ago I read in the paper that he is being brought to court for taking money and not dilvering the kit cars. I believe there were 13 orders since 2002 that he never delivered, and kept the $ 15,000 deposits. Now for the other lambos, there is a dentist by my place that owns a blk lambo, and a white testa. I think there are a few lambos in the city, but people do not drive them because its hard to find people that turn wrenches on those cars unless you do it yourself..

    I was in my TR the other day and saw I black countach 88 / pre anniversary 89 driven by a young ( 16-18 ) backwards hat guy.
    Did my usual flash lights, wave / thumbs up, but all I got was the 2 fast 2 furious attitude snarl.

    Was it something I said????

    the yellow murci is in edmonton. It is owned by a famous restaurant dude.

    There are a couple of other TR guys that I kinda know. I will see if I could get them hooked in. May be difficult, because with my car in calgary, everybody goes " Sure....you have a Ferrari. And can I see this (imaginary) Ferrari. Oh you must mean Fiero, or Festiva."

    Anyway, you get the idea.

    We should maybe consider a Lake trip or something like that.
    Check out the UTAH ferrari owners club site ( link from Ferrarisales.com )
    and the do some great scenery drives/ overnights.

    I volunteer to videotape!!!

    Suffering from redhead withdrawal,
    myhorse.

    PS My wife wants to know if she can bring her TT???

    LAtest word from sandro...
    My car is Alive!!!!!
    The fuel accumulator is bad leaking gas and introducing air into the fuel system. He swapped it with and older one and voila!!!my car is alive again.

    The new part should hopefully be here Sat or Mon . I plan to pick it up Thurs.
    That makes me free next weekend!!!!

    This may work as this w/e looks pretty crappy.

    Keep my posted
